When opening an assembly with the preface set to automatic lock objects on add to workspace. PDMLINK does lock all components. When opening an assembly from local drive and components are in PDMLINK with server turn on PDMLINK does not lock any of the components.
Case Reference: [ref:_00DA0YLPa._500F0WawuQ:ref]
Case Subject: With Prefernce (Automatically lock objects added to workspace)set to YES. Does not lock objects that are downloaded to workspace when opening an assembly from a network drive. The assembly is using parts from PDMLINK.
This case is assigned to me. I tried replicating the use case and found it to be reproducible.
Objects available on Windchill server doesn’t get locked , when you are retrieving the copy of assembly from local disk. This is the current behaviour Windchill PDMlink.
“Automatically lock objects added to workspace” preference works with explicit “Add to Workspace” command.
Even if you open any assembly from Windchill via File ->Open, then also locking of object doesn’t happen.
